They are a force for good in the world

But what does it take to keep them strong?


It takes a force

Their journey is everyone's responsibility. From the moment they enlist, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, they can rely on your support.

When they enlist

From the moment recruits swear an oath to military service, the USO stands behind them as they volunteer to serve our country.

  • USO volunteers welcome new recruits at USO locations inside Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS).

  • Introduce new recruits and their families to the wide range of USO support offered around the world.

  • Provide a friendly, relaxing environment as they begin their military careers as soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen.

On the front lines

When troops are ordered into combat zones, the USO provides a home away from home to help bridge the distance.

  • Deliver the comforts of home through care packages, snacks, and refreshments.

  • Provide entertainment by supporting celebrity USO tours, movies and video games.

  • Connect service members with phone calls home and free Wi-Fi access inside our centers.

  • Provide information, programming and community support at two warrior centers near Washington, D.C., and another in Landstuhl, Germany.

  • When a service member makes the ultimate sacrifice, the USO embraces loved ones at every step of their journey to Dover Air Force Base, Delaware.

  • Support military families through partnerships with military veteran organizations.

Transitioning home

When military service to the nation is complete, the USO helps service members and their families successfully transition into civilian life.

  • Develop a clear plan for the future as they transition out of the military.

  • Offer one-on-one support and access to local community networks and resources to help soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen reach personal and professional goals.

  • Host summits, workshops and networking events for transitioning service members and military spouses.
